Question about Hotpoint FFA60 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have had this fridge for 3 years now and has always on regular occasions decided to defrost when it feels like it and asks me to consume all the food immediately! I have wasted massive amounts of money on food and calls to hotpoint and have had a hotpoint engineer out to sort the problem about a year ago. It goes fine for a few months..then it defrosts all over again! Its just done it again, luckily I am not using the freezer anymore it only had some peas in there. Has anyone had this problem and solved it?? I would really like to use my freezer again but am loosing patience with hotpoint! I'd be very grateful for some advice.

Can you hear the compressor running? Is the fan inside the freezer running? It could be that a wire connection has come loose during the move. Was the fridge laid on it's side during the move? If so you probably have compressor oil restricting the refrigerant system. If compressor and fan are running you will probably need a qualified refrigeration tech to check it out.

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

This will work in most all cases of this type. You need a piece of copper wire, 14 guage, 12 to 16 inches. You can shortin it as you need to Turnoff the power to the fridge. Rap one end of the wire around the evaprorator heater and feed the othe end down the drain tube. This wire will heat up when the heater comes on and will supply heat down into the drain tube hopefully preventing the drain from freezing.
